Arsenal's fastest man, Theo Walcott, might start for the club on Saturday against Southampton after being out for two months after having abdominal surgery. 

"He has not played even a reserve team game, but I will put him in the squad on Saturday," Arsene Wenger told reporters

With Walcott this season, the Gunners won six and lost one. Since he's been injured, they have won seven, drawn two and lost three. 

He was really missed in the Gunners' home tie against Borussia Dortmund as his pace would have made a real impact. Walcott's speed is a complete game-changer and can really bring Arsenal's poor performances back to life. 

Fortunately for Arsenal though, they have been superb this season and since Walcott got injured, they have gone two points clear at the top of the EPL. When Walcott got underwent surgery, Arsenal were tied on points with Tottenham. 

Walcott was originally picked to start for Arsenal against Stoke but he had to pull with this injury, and so Serge Gnabry stepped in and he was very impressive. Now Gnabry is being lined up with a shock World Cup spot for Joachim Löw's Germany side. 

Having Theo back is such a huge bonus for the Gunners, his pace and natural striking ability serve as a huge boost. 

"Of course you miss a player like Theo Walcott," Wenger added.

"Theo had a good start to the season, he scored goals, he provided chances and had assists. He can always give you a different option in the game and that is of course vital."
